RESEARCH INTERESTS:
• Research interests center around the coevolution of the Cambrian explosion and environment, especially focus on the coevolution of the lobopods and arthropods of Early Cambrian Chengjiang Lagerstätte and environment, thereby, the origin, diversification and tapmorphy of Early Cambrian lobopods and arthropods as well as the geologically and/or biologically driven processes of the environment are the aspects of my research interests.
